Description

Now a major motion picture from Studio Ghibli.

‘Deliciously entertaining.’ – Guardian

A magical story for young readers from the author of Howl’s Moving Castle and Charmed Life, Diana Wynne Jones.

Earwig was left at St Morwald''s Home for Children as a baby. Unlike the other orphans, she loves it there – mostly because she has the run of the place and seems to have a surprising ability to persuade people to do as she wants…

So the last thing Earwig wants is to be sent to live with the very strange Bella Yaga. Her new ''mother'' is actually a wicked witch, and Earwig will need all her ingenuity and talent (and some help from a talking cat) if she is to survive…


Review quote

“…a delightful sampler of her originality and imagination, with small unexpected touches.” Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times Culture, Children’s Book of the Week

“There''s a nice helping of magic and some brisk upbeat sentiment in this crisply written story… How the feisty Earwig outwits the pair with her own special skills and the help of Bella Yaga''s cat Thomas is deliciously entertaining.” Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian

Praise for ENCHANTED GLASS:

‘Blissful’
Guardian

‘Wynne Jones is superb, mixing the comical with the magical’
The Times
